Travel photos from all over the world

The photos you see here represent about 14 years of business and personal travel to some of the far corners of the earth. Many of the photos have stories behind them, and I'll try to slowly add them as I get the chance.

Thaipusam: Check out the photos from the Thaipusam celebrations which happen annually in January or February. Almost two million watch as thousands of Hindu worshippers are lulled into trances, loaded down with huge metal kavadis, pierced through the face, or have hooks inserted into their backs, and then climb 272 steps to Batu Caves at the edge of the city. It's a spectacle unlike anything else.

Trying to get online from the road?: I've started compiling a list of non-global-chain hotels with free or cheap wifi, some of them in out-of-the-way places.
